MY Samira dive boat review

The 37 meters Samira liveaboard, owned by Discovery Divers Red Sea, is offering scuba diving cruises on the Egyptian Red Sea. The beautiful wooden vessel was designed with liveaboard diving in mind and appears in luxury and comfort.

Boat Cabins & Layout

The Samira can accommodate a maximum of 20 divers on-boars. Indeed, with 10 double occupancy cabins plus a lot of great communal areas, there’s plenty of space for everyone.

There are 8 cabins, located on the lower deck, which display 2 twin beds. Plus, each has air-conditioning and ensuite bathroom. Moreover, you’ll find 2 extra cabins, said “honeymoon suites” on the top deck. Indeed, these cabins have double beds, a mini bar, air-conditioning and a private bathroom with separate shower stall. Also, those two cabins each have their own entertainment system.
